Nd:YVO4 Laser

An Nd:YVO4 laser - more commonly known as 'Vanadate' - is a laser in which the active gain medium is neodymium-doped yttrium orthovanadate: Nd:YVO4

lasers are optically pumped using either a flashlamp or laser diode array. They typically emit light with a wavelength of 1064 nm, but may also operate at 914nm or 1342nm.  Common applications include marking, engraving, spectroscopy and research.
